Dreams - We told our parents with these M&Ms we had made that say #1 grandma/grandpa, boy or girl? and a pic of a pacifier. Since we told them over the 4th of July weekend, we went with a red, white, and blue theme. It took them all a few minutes to figure out there were messages on the M&Ms, but when they did their expressions and reactions were priceless.
We told all of our friends with DH wearing this shirt. Don't mind my dog, she saw the camera and jumped in the shot. She just assumed I wanted a picture of her
I really want to throw a gender reveal party, but I don't think it's going to happen. I saw a blog that just had some of the cutest ideas! So for those of you looking for any ideas, here a few that I loved:
For guests to have some thing to do while they ate and mingled, they had blue and pink pieces of paper for guests to contribute name suggestions and drop them into a bowl. They did the Chocolate Bar Game, which I find kind of gross hehe. Chocolate bars are melted into diapers and guests are asked to guess which candy bar they are. The last activity they did involved a list of Old WIves Tales about how to predict the gender of the baby. They pulled the mother and father to the front of the group and went through a list of these tales, they recommend an odd number of questions so there wouldn't be a tie. They posted the results with little blue and pink onsies.
For the food they had all of her pregnancy cravings. For the big reveal they had 50 mini cupcakes and filled them with either pink or blue frosting, based on the envelope from the ultrasound nurse. The cupcakes were topped with yellow and green frosting. With full sized cupcakes, sometimes when you bite into them you may not actually get to the colored frosting. With mini cupcakes, they are more manageable in size, so everyone would get to find out the results at the same time.
